Elandskraal gets a police station

ELANDSKRAAL – Community members, government officials and various stakeholders gathered in Elandskraal outside Marble Hall in the Ephraim Mogale Local Municipality (EPMLM) to witness the opening of the Elandskraal Police Station last Wednesday, 24 April 2019.

According to the South African Police Service (Saps) the station handover event also sought to engage stakeholders as part of bringing services and resources closer to the people, one of the priorities of government.

The recently completed Elandskraal police station is situated in the Mahwelereng Cluster near Marble Hall and police said it was ready to serve the local communities within the EPMLM and surrounding areas including the farming community.

This, police said as a continuation of the Saps program of service delivery due to population growth, spatial development and a step towards a journey to a safer South Africa.

Keamotseng Ramaila, Sekhukhune District Municipality Executive Mayor, welcomed Member of the Executive Committee (MEC) Makoma Makhurupetje to officially hand over the Elandskraal Police Station building.

Ramaila encouraged the community of Elandskraal and surrounding villages to work together with the police to help reduce crime.

Ramaila further called for the community to ensure that the facility was cared for and guard against vandalism of any kind on the premises.

He appealed to the community to use the police station and report any kinds of crime that affected them to ensure a safer living environment.

MEC Makhurupetje advised residents to report all kinds of laziness or inefficiencies on the part of the police to Limpopo Provincial Police Commissioner, Lieutenant General Nnke Ledwaba.

Community members said they were thankful for government’s effort to provide them a police station as they would not longer have to travel distances to access services.
